"China in the Middle Ages"
IntroductionDuring the Middle Ages—under the leadership of Mongol emperor Kublai Khan—China reached the height of its wealth and power. As you've learned in this chapter, China received many foreigners who traveled great distances over the Silk Road to visit China's capital city. They were impressed by its wide streets, beautiful palaces, and splendid homes. Marco Polo is perhaps one of the most famous Europeans to visit China. In this activity, you will visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art Web site to "walk in the footsteps of Marco Polo" as he journeyed along the Silk Road.
